1/2 cup peanuts
4 tablespoons jaggery, powdered or syrup

Preparation

1
Soak poha in water for 5 minutes; drain water and keep poha aside.

About

A recipe from the cook at our office, which he served as a evening snack a few weeks back. It was soo tasty that I wanted another plate ;)

This variation uses poha instead of steamed rice flour, as the lazy me found poha instant still not much difference in taste.
